When was the last time you spent time looking at the clouds? The shapes and colors of the clouds give us clues about what the weather is and what weather to expect. Did you know that the clouds were given names by Luke Howard (1772-1864), an amateur meteorologist in England, after sketching and observing cloud patterns?
Join us for Storytime: Guess and Go! on Facebook Live today at noon to find out more about Luke Howard and the names of clouds.
In July, families in the Morristown area learned about weather and how it affected George Macculloch’s 19th-century farm in the three-part virtual Saturday morning series called “Dig it! Plant it! Eat it! In a Box”. Join us in August to learn about cloud patterns, what vegetables and fruits grew on Mr. Macculloch’s farm, and to make art with teaching artist, Lisa Madson. To learn more about this FREE program, generously funded by The Astle Alpaugh Family Foundation, email Cynthia Winslow, Curator of Education and Community Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
